CBS' Bob Scheiffer, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz weigh in on RNC

Speeches critiqued from Ann Romney, Paul Ryan

TAMPA, Fla. - Bob Scheiffer is one of the most seasoned journalists in Washington, covering political conventions since 1968.

The CBS News host of "Face the Nation", has seen a lot of speeches and said Vice Presidential Nominee Paul Ryan's was did just what the Republicans wanted him to do last night.

"I said last night, Paul, 'the policy wonk' has become 'fang the attack dog," he said.

One thing Scheiffer knows from his years of covering politics is that voters will vote for who they like, and he believes Ann Romney may have given her husband the likeability the voters need.

Romney seeks to attract women, who he has lacked support from in the polls.
The leading woman in the democratic party does not think Ann Romney's speech did enough to bring more women over to Romney's side.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee Chairperson, braved enemy territory today to make the rounds at the convention's radio row and generate buzz ahead of her party's convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Schultz said Romney will have a very hard time gaining ground against President Obama because of what he has done while in office for women.

"Women appreciate that the first bill the President signed into law was the Lilly Ledbetter fair pay act," she said.
